Waking up to the hour

One of the things we pray a lot in Fire Dweller, in our own lives, is to be aware of the hour in which we live.

All is not simple. All is not as it seems. Tony read two really eye opening books recently, Epicenter by Joel Rosenberg and Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg. 

They are at the top of my pile to read when this latest book is turned in. 

This verse has been impressing me lately:

Isaiah 45:8

Drip down, O, heavens from above, and let the clouds pour down righteousness; Let the earth open up and salvation bear fruit, and righteousness spring up with it. I,the Lord, have created it.

Let the earth open up, salvation bear fruit, righteousness spring up. I love those images, those lyrics of intercession.

Pray for our nation if you are one to pray. Pray.

Here's another great verse out of Isaiah 45:19

"I have not spoke in secret."

While God does not have to tell us anything, He chooses to tell us things. That is what we often cannot comprehend. 

"Speak, O, Lord, and we'll respond."

"Pray for our nation"

Amen to that.

I assume we've gone through economic hardships in the past, but not since I've been married with my own kids. I have to say, it's very troublesome...

Thank God He is still speaking...
